As the annual humpback whale migration begins members of the public can learn more about these amazing creatures at a series of free talks at Bennetts Head early next month.
Through the Marine Discovery Program, you can join visiting marine naturalist Jeannie Lawson to gain some insights into this amazing East Coast natural event.
Each year more than 35,000 humpback whales travel from their Antarctic summer feeding grounds in one of nature's grandest spectacles.
The Great Lakes has a number of locations and natural look-out sites where these magnificent creatures can be viewed.
Hunter Local Land Services and MidCoast Council are hosting whale expert Jeannie Lawson as part of the Marine Discovery Program, which brings together some of the leading names in marine research and conservation to share their findings and raise awareness of our amazing ocean environments.
Jeannie will be conducting free 40 minute talks at Bennetts Head, Forster on Saturday, June 15 at 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm and 1.30pm.
And, while you're there you can watch the gentle giants cruise past on their way north to breed, give birth and nurture their young.
The talks are free and there's no need to book - simply turn up and we can enjoy the whales together.
